Rhode Island congressman David Cicilline is on a four-day trip to Liberia to assess the United Nations’ work in the West African nation still recovering from a civil war. The Providence Journal reported that Cicilline is meeting with officials from the UN and the US Embassy, as well as Liberian legislators, the heads of the Liberian armed forces, and the national police. He will also visit with President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, whom he met during her spring trip to Washington. The Democrat told the paper that the trip is an opportunity to learn about Liberia, its relationship to the United States, and to understand the UN mission there. The trip was organized and paid for by the private nonprofit United Nations Foundation.
